7:00 am
good morning, america. this morning -- breaking news. the hotel maid at the center of the explosive sexual assault accusations breaks her silence. what do you want? >> i want justice. i want him to go to jail. i want him to know that you cannot use your power when you do something like this. >> in our exclusive interview, her fight for justice. >> god is my witness. i'm telling the truth. boiling point. the frantic race to make a deal in washington over the debt. is this the most important week ever for america's credit line? what it means for your money. new details about amy winehouse's sudden death. her father speaking out this morning and her heart-wrenching
7:01 am
last words. plus, katy perry remembers amy winehouse. savage attack. the daring rescue of seven teens in an alaskan wilderness school. victims speak out nonoabout what really happened. good morning, everyone. look who's back. hope you had a great time. we had a fantastic vacation. it's good to be back. boy, coming back to this bombshell interview that you have. the woman who accused dominique strauss-kahn the former head of the imf of sexual assault. she spoke out to you. i was riding back into town last night, everyone in town wanted to know, what is she like? >> that's part of the reason she came forward. she wants to put a face to this story. as prosecutors are still weighing whether or not to proceed with this case, the
7:02 am
woman at the center of the story, now coming forward to give her side for the first time. it's an unusual and risky move. it could turn the entire case upside down. this morning, we're finally meeting the maid who stayed silent for nearly two months and what she says happened in room 2806. >> he came to me and grabbed my breasts. no, you don't have to be sorry. i said, stop. i don't want to lose my job. >> reporter: the woman at the center of the case now reveals herself to the world. her name is nafissatou diallo. nafi for short. a 32-year-old hotel maid from guinea south africa. and in her first television interview, nafi recalls when she was sexually assaulted by dominique strauss-kahn, the man who at the time the head of the international monetary fund and in the running to be the next president of france. >> stop this. stop this.
7:03 am
but he kept pushing me and pushing me through the hallway. keep pushing me. i was so afraid. i was so scared. >> had you seen dominique strauss-kahn before that day? >> i had never seen him before. >> when did you realize that he was one of the most powerful men in the world? >> i was watching in the news. and then, they say, he's going to be the next president of france. i said, oh, my god. i was crying. they're going to kill me. i'm going to die. >> why did you think that, nafi? >> because i know if that was in my country, he's a powerful man like that, they're going to kill me before someone knows what happened to me. reporter: prosecutors initially believe nafi, but now the case said that the case has
7:04 am
weakened because she's been untrue about her background, history and personal relationships. strauss-kahn, who strongly denies all charges, pleaded not guilty and was released from house arrest. while nafi's case may be in jeopardy, she is not backing down, catching both the defense and the prosecution by surprise. what do you want? >> i want justice. i want him to go to jail. i want him to know that you cannot use your power when you do something like this. >> reporter: in days, her lawyer kenneth thompson, plans to file a civil suit. going directly after their allegations. >> there's no mystery or hiding the fact. this man attempted to rape her. >> reporter: for nafi, who has a 15-year-old daughter, it's not just about defending her story but her reputation, as well. there have been "new york post" headlines calling her a "hooker." are you a prostitute? >> i am not. i have never been called that
7:05 am
since i was born. god is my witness. i'm telling g e truth from my heart. god knows that. for more now, we bring in christopher dickey. he is the paris bureau chief for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." his print interview, exclusive print interview, with nafissatou diallo is running today. and also joining us, "gma" legal analyst dan abrams. christopher, you had quite a bit of time that you spent with nafi. just your overall impressions? >> my overerl impression is that when she talks about the alleged incident, she's very convincing. when she's talking about some aspect of her past, it seems a little vague. she seems to be fishing around for what to say. but on balance, i found her a convincing witness. >> did she also with you continue to say that i didn't want to lose my job? >> absolutely. i think you have to sort of see what she's saying in the context of her fear about losing her job.
7:06 am
she comes from a poor village in a very poor country. she got to the united states through whatever means. she managed to get this job. she's making upwards of $45,000 a year. she's trying to raise her child, her 15-year-old daughter, by herself. if she loses that job, everything could collapse. so, as a point of coercion, fear of losing the job -- i think the whole incident turns on that. >an, this is highly unusual to come forward like this. and dominique strauss-kahn's attorneys aren't pleased whatsoever. they released a statement, that says, in part, ms. diallo is the first accuser in history to use a media campaign to try to convince a prosecutor to press charges. her lawyers know that her claim for money suffers a fatal blow when the criminal charges are dismissed, as they must be. >> i don't know if it would be a fatal blow for the civil case to move forward. but this is a one-of-a-kind situation where you have an
7:07 am
accuser in a sexual assault case coming forward at the prosecutor making the decisisn on whether to move forward. what makes this so unusual is that the prosecutors made it pretty clear they aren't going to move forward. they believe, according to a letter that they sent to the defense, that she lied to the grand jury and more importantly to them in the context of this investigation. by sending that letter to the defense team, they're making it very clear, we don't intend to move forward with this case. so, her lawyers may have felt that they had no other choice to keep this case alive, other than to put enormous political public pressure on the prosecutor to move forward. >> prosecution saying we're not going to comment on a pending case. and you're right about the letter. i saw the letter that was sent to the judge and to the defense attorneys. and some of the inconsistencies. and part of it what happened or did not happened after the attack, christopher, in going back to work, as she did. >> there are two questions in that letter that are raised.
7:08 am
things that she did before this incident. her tax returns, her asylum request. only one inconsistency they talked about that has to do with the incident itself. it says in the letter that she went and she cleaned another room. and then, she came back to the room where the incident took place. we know now that she didn't clean that other room. she was in there for a minute and a half, two minutes, picking up her things to take to the room where the incident happened. >> you can read your full account in "newsweek" and "the daily beast." august 1st is the next court date? >> yes. christopher and dan, thank you very much. much more on this tomorrow on "gma" and tomorrow night on "nightline." we go into detail about what she says happened, george. to the latest in the standoff in washington over raising the nation's debt limit. just over a week to go, now, before america's credit card runs out. the latest round of talks to find a solution broke down again
7:09 am
over the weekend. democrats and republicans now pursuing their own plans. that's starting to unsettle the world's financial markets. let's get a reality check from abc's countdown team. jake tapper at the white house. jon karl on capitol hill. bianna golodryga from the new york stock exchange. looking at the asian and european markets overnight, there seems to be concern but not panic yet, bianna. >> reporter: that's right. wall street seems to be patient with washington. markets opening blower. just about 130 points lower. not the knee jerk reaction that people were fearful of. things are still at an impasse. even though the markets aren't selling off, people are concerned about what's still on the table a credit downgrade. the s&p says the u.s. could lose its aaa ratings in the next three months. that would mean that interest rates go higher. it would be more difficult for people to get a loan out there. and it could be a big burden for this economy, as we're just starting to recover. george?
7:10 am
>> jon, they had been hoping on capitol hill to come up with some sort of deal before the markets opened today. that has not happened. it seems, the only thing that everyone seems to be accepting that any deal won't include any new tax increases. >> that's the big deal. but the two sides have essentially given up on the idea of coming up with a bipartisan deal. so, you have harry reid coming up with a plan for democrats. that he says includes $2.7 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years and gives the president the debt ceiling increase that takes him all of the way to 2013. we haven't seen the details yet, george. republicans are already saying that those -- his plan includes gimmicks and phantom cuts. like claiming big savings because we won't be fighting a war in iraq anymore. so, the republicans are coming up with their plan, which would include about $1 trillion in cuts now. a debt ceiling increase of eight to ten months. it would require the president to come back to congress next year to ask for ananher debt ceiling increase and more cuts.
7:11 am
>> and, jake, that's the huge sticking point for the white house. the president has made it clear time and time again that he won't sign a short-term increase that required everyone to come back. and he squashed it again at the meeting again last night. >> that's right. republicans leaders have said that, as well, in the past, that they didn't want any short-term solution to this problem. they changed their tune on this. the white house said that speaker boehner needs to stand up and pursue one of the paths that exists out there. they say with the reid plan, in terms of the gimmicks that jon was talking about, a lot of the gimmicks, including saving for future wars that won't be fought, are part of thth republican budget. and they say that the republicans have to have the same standard for everyone, george. >> that decision has to happen fast. we're expecting something from speaker boehner this afternoon. thank you all very much. robin? >> all right, george. now, to that savage shooting in norway that left so many dead at the youth camp. the man who confessed to the massacre that killed 93 people, said he wanted to start a revolution. to take his country back from
7:12 am
muslims and other immigrants. now, he's in court today. abc's miguel marquez is in oslo with the latest right now. good morning, miguel. >> reporter: robin, the judge has ordered that breivik must spend eight weeks i i confinement until the next hearing date. one thing that came up is there were two other cells working with his organization. all this as we hear new details about the force of his attack. it's a picture of horror. teens barricade themselves in cabins. mattresses against the door. their faces, frozen in terror. just outside, anders behring breivik, dressed as a cop killing at will. >> it was like going on killing people like it was no big deal. >> reporter: the horror went on for more than an hour. 700 people. mostly teens on the isisnd. some tried to swim for safety. only to be shot in the water. kids hiding by the shoreline
7:13 am
were shot point-t-ank. >> i could hear his breathing. i could also feel his boots near me. i could feel the warmth from the barrel when he pulled the trigger. >> reporter: incredibly adrian pracon survived by playing dead. not all were so lucky. this photo captures a horrifying moment. from a tv helicopter, you could see the shooter taking aim. a victim seemingly pleading for mercy. >> he yelled, i'm going to kill you all. and he was very accurate on where he was shooting. >> reporter: this yellow tent, right back here, that's where the ferry comes in and also where the shooter boarded the ferry to take him to the island. one witness we spoke to, that he was so convincing as a cop, even officials from the i iand came over to the ferry, checked his credentials and let him on. the killer planned meticulously. an hour earlier and 23 miles away, breivik detonated a
7:14 am
massive remote-controlled bomb in central oslo. possibly a distraction. several people killed, dozens injured. the streets became triage center. police, military medics, all fully engaged and on alert. but this was the warmup act. his main target was utoya island, a camp for the nation's aspiring politicians. hours before his murderous rampage, he popoed this disturbing video and a 1,500-page manifesto online. it's a racist, anti-islamic rant calling on european right-wingers to embrace martyrdom. we're also hearing incredible stories of bravery, as well. there was a 10-year-old boy on the island. bravely held a gun to his head. the little boy began to yell at breivik. telling him, you just killed my father. saying, i'm only 10 years old and don't deserve to die. and breivik did not pull the trigger. robin? >> it really is. all right, miguel. thank you very much. we heard the story of the 10-year-old, breaks your heart. we're going to turn to josh elliott on other stories developing right now. goododorning. >> good morning, robin.
7:15 am
welcome back, george. good morning to all of you. we begin with america's new ambassador to afghanistan, who is now on the job, sworn in just hours ago in kabul. ryan crocker said that there will be no, quote, rush for the its, end quote, as the u.s. prepares to withdraw from afghanistan. 10,000 troops are scheduled to come home by year's end. a dramatic sight over dallas last night. take a look. an american airlines jet trailing fuel behind it. a 777. just left dallas for brazil when one of its engines caught fire. the pilot had to make a u-turn, had to dump all that fuel to attempt to lighten his load. still, though, several tires blew as the plane hit the runway. however, a safe landing otherwise. and hundreds of same-sex couples made it official sunday. tying the knot on the first day that gay marriage became legal in new york. the weddings took place between young and old. protesters out in droves, vowing to fight the law.
7:16 am
new york is the largest state to legalize gay marriage in this country. football fans may get their wish. the four-month or so nfl lockout expected to end this week. the players union players committee is expected to vote today to recommend a ten-year labor agreement. it's the first in a series of votes that could get the wheels in motion to begin training camps by the end of the week. good news, or perhaps -- yeah. good news. for the tens of millions of americans that wanted to be doing chores every sunday. >> we're ready for football. >> yes, so much. we've been ready for months. >> thanks so much. >> i was wondering with that. where is this going to go? let's go to sam now. >> perhaps a cooldown would be good news, as well. i don't know. a lot of people e uld feel that. we got these temperatures down a bit. into new england, also acrosos the great lakes. 75 in boston. 79 in new york. so much better than where we were. a combination of fronts and clouds, not the nicest-looking day. but those temperatures are down. by the end of the week they'll come back up. so, keep your eye on that. dallas, again, is 104, more than
7:17 am
20 days. looking at oklahoma city, about 104, as well. we got heat in the southern papa of the country. that's the weather around the nation.
7:18 am
all of that weather was brought to you by kellogg's special k products. george? >> thank you, sam. now, to that vicious bear attack in alaska. several teenagers were on a wilderness course on sunday night, crossing a river, when they ran across a momma bear and her cub. ababs abbie boudreau joins us from anchorage with the story. good morning abbie. >> reporter: good morning, george. the students were on the first day of their trip. it was the first day they were without an instructor. four teenagers are hospitalized after coming face-to-face with a grizzly. what began as a hike through alaska's back country, ended in a fight for survival. 7 students more than 100 miles north of anchorage, alaska lined up single-file, to cross a river.
7:19 am
only to face a grizzly bear protecting her cub. >> as they were doing the crossing, they heard from the front of the line, somebody screamed that there there was a bear. and that's when the mauling started. >> reporter: afraid for their lives, they began to run and scattered. but it was too late. the bear attacked four of the seven teenagers before eventually leaving them alone. the uninjured set up camp and gave basic first aid, and activated their emergency beacon to try to get help. but it was more than five hours later before they were finally rescued by helicopter. 17-year-old sam gottsegen of denver suffered life-threatening injuries. we were with his parents when he called home from his hospital bed. >> i have a bunch of cuts on my stomach and back. i have, i guess they said i have two broken ribs and bite marks on my head. >> reporter: his parents relieved their son survived. >> just hearing his voice was like a miracle. it was just amazing. the hour that i spent before that was probably one of the hardest hours of my life. >> reporter: the attack comes less than a month after a 57-year-old man was killed in
7:20 am
yellowstone national park, when he and his wife encountered a bear on a hike. in that case, officials believe the bear was also protecting cubs. there was a second group of students hiking nearby. they had no idea there had been a bear attack. they were also rescued by a helicopter late last night. robin and george? >> wow. what a terrifying weekend for those kids. >> momma bears are very protective. coming up -- amy winehouse's father speaks out about his daughter's tragic death. >> i gave her that one thing. that was love. her whole life was devoted to her family and her friends. and crucial dadafor in the appeal for amanda knox. the new forensic findings that could set her free by september. plus, a "gma" exclusive. jaycee dugard's mother speaking out live for the first time. how she made it through the 18-year ordeal searching for her daughter. and how jaycee is doing now. after your local news and weather.

is morning in london. so many fans paying tribute to the singer who died saturday. her father's also speaking out this morning. and we're learning a lot more about the hours and days before she died. >> especially the days leading up to her death. it was quite shocking to the extent that it had gotten. we'll discuss that. we say good morning, america, on this monday morning. and the latest on amanda knox. important day for her in court. why new forensic findings will finally set her free. our elizabeth vargas is live in perugia, italy. we'll have the latest in that. >> most hope she has had in years.
7:31 am
also, our "gma" exclusive. live interview with jaycee dugard's mom. how she coped with her daughter's 18 years in hiding. and how jayce jaycee's doing now, after sharing her story with the world in the last weeks. >> and her therapist, will be talking about how she is coping, too. we begin with the amy winehouse story. still haven't pinpointed the exact cause of death. she had struguged with alcohol and drug addiction for years. let's go to abc's nick watt for the latest in london. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, george. amy winehouse saw her doctor on friday. a regular checkup. no problem reported. saturday afternoon, she was found alone, dead in her bed here at her london home. she was found by her bodyguard who said that there was no drugs in the building at the time. medics believed she had been dead for some hours. right now, police are describing the death as unexplained. amy winehouse's distraught parents just visited this

7:33 am
amy, apparently was out of it. her parting words, i love you. winehouse's swift descent into a mar of heroin crack and alcohol, had been public and plain to see. this, her last solo gigig a few weeks ago. a comeback tour. she was incoherent stumbling. and in this youtube clip, the crowd booed. the tour was canceled. it seemed addiction finally killed this fragile talent age 27. same age as jimi hendrix, jim morrison janis joplin, and kurt cobain. russell brand a friend who also struggles with addiction, had this to say -- when you love someone who suffers from addiction, you await the phone call telling you that it's too
7:34 am
late, that she's gone. addiction can, of course be treated. but the addict must want to quit. amy winehouse was either unwilling or just unable to fight it. now, an inquest will open into amy winehouse's death in just about an hour from now. she had been working on a new album before she died. there are talks that might be released. george, hard to believe that during her lifetime, she only released two albums. >> and had such an impact. nick, thanks very much. we just saw russell brand. part of his tribute that he posted over the weekend to amy winehouse and married to katy perry. and abc's bianna golodryga had a chance to talk to perry, about their reaction to the death of their friend. >> i feel really sad. and i just hope she finds peace. >> reporter: you and your husband tweeted about it wrote about it, as well, about her passing.
7:35 am
>> he wrote a piece about her. an interesting piece about a phone call, when you know somebody that's dealing with addiction, you dread that phone call. and sometimes that phone call is that person saying i've had enough, i want recovery. d sometimes that phone call is the unfortunate phone call. but there will always be a phone call. >> we'll see the full interview later in the show. now, we want to talk to dr. sack, the ceo of promises treatment center in los angeles. thank you for joining us this morning.g. you know, one of the saddest things about this wasn't a surprise at all. we watched this spiral in public for so long. >> that's absolutely true. there was lots of evidence in attempts to return to her singing career. and concern expreed by her family that she was in trouble with her addiction.
7:36 am
>> but, explain to us, help us to understand that everybody knows it, everybody sees it, yet no one can stop it. >> you're dealing with an adult and we don't have involuntary treatment for people with drug and alcohol problems. so, that what you're trying to do is try to get them to see their lives differently. to really believe that if they stop using drugs that their life will be happier and more fulfilled than if they keep using them. >> she had that famous song when she talked about no rehab at all. yet, tried as recently as a month ago, to go into treatment. can you give us some insight as to why it can work for some individuals but simply doesn't take with others? >> i think the reasons are complex. clearly, people who have psychiatric problems, depression, eating disorders, have a harder time overcoming drugs than others that don't haha that kind of psychological
7:37 am
and emotional baggage. trauma in childhood. you know, current problems in relationships, all add to the difficulty people have with treatment. >> and we saw that, you know, according to some reports that this latest spiral was caused by another breakup with a boyfriend. and that she did then try to go into treatment. do you think -- he said, listen, i don't think you're ever going to change. do you think there's anything more those close to her could have done? >> i think those close to her did everything they knew how to do. at promises, we see people effective as parents, are fully onboard, putting all of their efforts trying to get their relatives into treatment as adults. and i think that probably her friends and family did all that they could. the fact that she was in treatment so recently is another indication that she was at least thinking about the fact that her
